Although Cortez Davis is no longer committed to Clemson, it hasn't stopped the Tigers' coaching staff from trying reel him back in.

"They really want me to come up there. They're really interested in me," Davis told CUTigers Monday night.

Although the interest from Clemson is still high, the staff hasn't pushed him too far in either direction.

"There's really no pressure on me. I'm just going to go up there again," Davis said.

Unsure of how soon he's going to be in Tigertown, though he does plan to take another trip to Clemson, Davis does plan to camp at Florida State, Florida, California and Southern California.

Despite the other trips, he considers the commitment to Florida State a firm one.

"It's about 75 percent," Davis said.

Mainland teammate and 2011 Clemson commit Marlin Lane would like to see Davis rejoin him in the Tigers' class.

"He's trying to get me back because we're real tight and we're boys," Davis said. "I just feel like I'm going to go where ever my heart tells me where to go and where I fit their style—whatever college, how they play. That's where I'm going to go."

Right now, there are plenty of options on the table, including Clemson.

"They're in my top five, my top six," Davis said.

Along with Florida State and Clemson, there are a few other national powerhouses that make up that top group.

Florida, Alabama, Southern California and LSU are also in consideration.

"There's not really an order," Davis said.

Unsure of the number of offers he received to this point, he said there have been "around" 17-20 offers sent his way.

"I'm just trying to fit in at somewhere I can play, a place where that will fit my style of football—wherever I go," Davis said.

A one-time standout on the basketball court for Mainland, he's hung up his basketball shoes so he can focus on school and football.

As a junior, Davis had 42 tackles and three interceptions on the gridiron.
